How is your vision?
We have goals and visions for everything...
We all want to get better at something, and we all want to achieve so many things. Our life is filled with vision and goals. Think about sports you work hard to get better not get worse. We study and study to get good grades. Some of us play video games for hours so that we might get better at the game and move up to the next level. Not just talking about gammers here, you got an IPhone, ITouch, IPad. then you got games that you play for well countless hours. Wh It is fun and you want to improve your high score. Now I am not judging you, I am just trying to make a point. We set goals and live with vision so that we get better. Look at me trying so hard all the time to capture that perfect video. I want to be better. I invest in equipment and work my tail off to achieve a better product.
So where am I going with all this? Well have you ever set goals or lived by a vision for your spiritual life? I mean it seems like very few of us set goals to be a better christian or even have a closer walk with God. It seems like these things we leave up to it will happen when it happens. But the thing is it just doesn’t happen. We have to see that we need to apply in these areas as well. Check out 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27 No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. Our spiritual Journey is a race, an event that we must strive after. Have a vision and set some goals, and in the end you will win the race!
